Family and loyalty – Gang Starr featuring J. Cole

Efe draws inspiration from the past successes of long-term musicians Ice Prince and BOJ as he raps conveniently on BOJ’s octave.
Mood swings – A boogie wit da hoodie

Never – Nonso Amadi

French’s diversity, Post’s fluctuating vocals, Cardi’s violence – all is in order as the trio crafted a song from a production built around many elements especially the bata drum.
No love for the lonely – Ed Sheeran featuring Ariana Grande
